SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (May 1) – Arizona Speedway was back in action on Saturday, with Zachary Madrid and Andy Clower earning IMCA feature wins.

Brody Center had the initial jump in the 20-lap IMCA Sunoco Stock Car main event but before the comple­tion of the first lap he would be overtaken by Madrid.

Madrid took full control and checked out from the rest of the field. The only thing to slow down his dominance was three stoppages. Larry Brigner recovered from an early flat to end the night in second.  Brody Center was third while Dennis Losing posted a fourth-place result. The top five was completed by Raymond Doyle.  

In Karl Kustoms IMCA Northern SportMod action, the 20-lap main event began with Robert Holmes setting the tone early. Holmes lost the coveted top place position on the second circuit to Clower.

Clower put on a clinic the rest of the distance. The only yellow flag incident was a lap 12 stoppage but Clower mastered the restart. John Morris ended the race the runner-up with third going to Rex Hasely.  James Meile placed fourth and Robert Holmes took home fifth.
